Everyone's favorite pint-sized Scotsman gets his own origin story, with art by Herogasm artist John McCrea. Mind reeling from recent events in The Boys, Wee Hughie heads home to Auchterladle- the semi-idyllic Scottish seaside town where he grew up. All Hughie wants is some time to himself, to return to the bosom of family and friends, and get his head together after two years of unimaginable chaos. But our hero's luck has always been more cloud than silver lining, and the familiar surroundings he craves are not all they might be. You can go home again- but with old pals warped beyond recognition and strangers in town up to no good, whether or not you should is another matter entirely...

    As well, McCrea and Burns are a nicer fit here than they were on "Herogasm" with a strong ability to draw characters just sitting around, talking and drinking. This comic plays to their strengths while also subverting the expectations of an Ennis comic where three guys go out drinking. "Highland Laddie" #1 shows a different side of Hughie and builds nicely on what's been going on in "The Boys." This is exactly what you want out of a spin-off mini. Read Full Review
